Big Displays for Big Data
(11/25/2013) 6 minutes


2D and stereo 3D walls are in use, displaying gigapixel data up to 64 megapixels resolution. Specific effort has been invested to optimizing high-speed local and distance file serving and collaboration using multiple 10Gb/s and 40Gb/s networks and software tuned to synchronized image sharing (SAGE), extremely high-resolution static and streaming image viewing (MediaCommons), and immersive virtual reality experiences (CalVR). Recent results adapting flash memory technology championed by SDSC to "FIONA" PCs driving 2D/3D big data displays locally with 40Gb/s network interfaces to impedance match multiple 10Gb/s connections, along with their applications will be presented, with focus on omics and archaeology.
